Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2014

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1Er Cru Cazetiers has a wonderful bouquet with mineral-rich black and red fruit; it is very focused and animated at first and then, with just a few swirls, it calms down and becomes very composed and refined. The palate is medium-bodied with candied orange peel and a smudge of vanilla on the entry. There is a core of blood orange at the center of this Cazetiers and though there is still some oak to be absorbed, it should evolve into a winning Gevrey-Chambertin.
Rated 92 by Decanter
Bright medium red. Cool, slightly medicinal aromas of cherry, raspberry and menthol. Densely packed, suave and seamless, with distinctly darker flavors than the Petite Chapelle. Best today on the building, perfumed back end, which shows considerable class and an impression of weightlessness. (Vinous)

Winery: Domaine Bruno Clair

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.
